Dominant mass: A dominant lump n a breast should be seen by your personal physician without delay. You can ask your physician about whether mammography is right for you. If you are from a breast cancer family, you are entitled to get brca1 / brca2 genetic screening and to act on the results as seems best to you. Best wishes and stay vigilant.
